New York City's Theatre District hardly needs an introduction. The Theatre District is concentrated along Broadway betweem 41st and 50th Street which includes Times Square.
One frequently hears of a new play opening on Broadway. Smaller productions often are referred to as being off - Broadway, however the more successful ones often do make it to Broadway. In order to qualify as a Broadway theatre, a theatre must have at least 500 seats and be located within the Theatre District. Broadway Theatre productions are considered to be some of the best in the world.
Taking in a theatre production in one of the forty Broadway theatres is definitely something you won't want to miss during your stay in New York. If you go to one of the TKTS booths (operated by the Theatre Development Fund), either at the north end of Times Square or at Duffy Square, you can purchase a same day ticket for many performances at a substantial discount, sometimes up to half price.
The main Theatre District is located either side of Broadway between 41st through 50th Street. Showtimes vary, however most productions run from Tuesday through Saturday with curtain times of 7pm or 8pm and many also have a matinee performance at 2pm on Wednesday and Saturday and at 3pm on Sunday.
